I happened upon this book entirely serendipitously, the way we often find the books that end up meaning the most to us. I can’t remember exactly when it was, but it was before I lived in London and while I was still working as a secondary school librarian in the Midlands. I was in there for the day and I had time to kill between whatever I had been doing and whatever I was doing next and so I ended up in Foyles browsing the gender studies section. For no particular reason that I can remember I picked up [REDACTED] and got goosebumps reading the introduction.
